The very best for your Tricone !

RichardO, 04.02.2015
National Resophonic (NRP, for short) make the very best (replacement) cones for your Tricone and yhe two sets I bought are very high quality. After much experimentation of cone design and aluminium alloys, NRP came out with their new improved cone, in perhaps 2009, or maybe earlier, and call it their Hot-Rod version. The older version were STILL the best you can get, then they improvemed them a lot more !
I think the NRP Hot-Rod Tricone cones are even closer in sound to original Tricone National cones (from the 1920's and 1930's) than even the 9.5" single cones that they do for their own guitars (and replacements for old National cones).
The 9.5" NRP Hot-Rod single cones have a slightly different sound than the originals (but still very good), but amazingly, I hear far less difference with these Tricone replacement cones, other than they are LOUDER than the original cones, and perhaps a fatter sound too. The set of three cones were 2g lighter than the set in my 1931 roundneck Tricone and 3g lighter than my 1927 squareneck Tricone - so should be even more responsive. Tey certainly sound it !
I bought two sets of Tricone cones AND two 9.5" single cones.
The nest you can buy !
Packaged safely for shipping from Germany to Scotland and these delicate items arrived unscathed.

upgrading Recording King Tricone

20.01.2016
Wanted to switch from electric lap steel to acoustic. Bought at Thomann an Recording King Tricone, at the time (several years ago), I thought, for about 440 euros. Very little money for a tricone. Dared to it. Never been disappointed by Thomann. Called in advance. Was perfectly informed about the noise limitations of the instrument. Their honest advice; given my budget limitations first try. Later possible upgrading with National Reso-Phonic Tricone Resonators. Played like this for a while (Hawaiian music and Blue Grass). Was not really happy. I consulted again, now mailed, and then the three National Resonators bought and installed. Simple job. The result? Really, and I mean that, amazing. Absolutely stunning. Much less than a modern National Reso-Phonic Tricone, but ...... BETTER than in the twenties / thirties National Tricone, series one (second hand market value in the thousands of dollars / euros), which I occasionally borrow for performances .

To maintain the authentic tone in Hawaii music I use a Sure SM57LC mic. For the Blue Grass, a clearly different genre, I use a very simple, but very effective Harley Benton Transducer of only Euro 11.90, of which I just stuck the pick-up at the level of the third highest string with double-sided tape against the bridge have got. Functions perfectly!
With the tone control of the amplifier, I correct most of the loss of about 20% of that specific, acoustic sound.
